Trust faces £15m debt11th September 2007
Swansea NHS Trust says it will incur debts of £15.5m unless it gets rid of 86 beds and loses around 750 jobs.
In a letter to health workers' union Unison, the acting trust chief executive Calum Campbell said: "Independent reports have made it clear that Swansea's hospitals have too many beds and we have been inefficient in the way we have managed care."
Unison said the idea of job losses was "unacceptable" and said the closure of beds was motivated by "financial cut-backs and not any planned improvements in health care".
